  1. Antonio Brown to the Raiders for a 3rd and 5th

    Oh I didn't know that. I think the league should make when players are traded the new team should inherit his entire contract and make them the ones responsible for paying him as it's not fair the Steelers trade a guy and still owe him money. I can understand when you cut a guy you are still responsible for paying him what's owed/guaranteed but this situation is crazy.
  2. Antonio Brown to the Raiders for a 3rd and 5th

    Hi can someone explain why the Steelers are still on the hook for 21 million in Brown's dead money since they traded him to another team? Is that 21 million from a signing bonus which can't be carried over to a new team via trade?
  3. Not looking forward to the 2nd half as Brady has been brutal as has been the play calling. Need to go hurry up temp offense. Also the defense is bound to go into the tank like they did in the 2nd half against the Chiefs. Probably be 7-3 Rams when the Patriots get the ball next.
  4. Got a bad feeling about this one that the Rams win. Had that same feeling last year as well. It will be 2 years in a row the Patriots lose to ex players and one from the previous years team. It seems like in all 5 of their defeats this year they lost to either ex players & coaches with the exception of the Jags loss. Anyways now time to take the loss.
  5. You prefer Goff over Brees? I prefer Brees b/c they normally do a better job of defending those types e.g. Rivers, Ryan. I fear Goff b/c he can move around in & out of the pocket to set up his throws. I'm also worried Todd Gurley will wake up for this game and cause a great deal of problems. The other problem I have is with Brandon Cooks wanting pay back the same way Lagarette Blount wanted it in last years SB. Come to think of it the Patriots have been killed by almost every ex player/coach this season e.g. Matt Patricia, Mike Vrable, and even Brandon Bolden. Can't remember how well Blount, Dion Lewis & Steven Ridley fared on those losses as well. I fear Aaron Donald wrecking this game and the longer it stays close it goes advantage Rams as sooner or later playing for the dramatic finish will catch up to the Patriots as it did last year against the Eagles. Cannot have a same type of Brandon Graham play turn the game like it did in last years game.
  6. Rams vs Saints - part II

    The Saints need to blame Sean Payton's play calling for this loss as numerous occasions he calling a wrong play e.g. 3rd & 7 when up 3-0 inside the red zone he called a WR screen that didn't even come close to a first down, then in the 4th after the big Ted Ginn catch he calls a pass that stops the clock and just screwed the entire series. Also on the Rams fake punt everyone with half a brain knew a fake was coming and thus he needed to have his defense on the field. So the moral of the story is epic fail by the so called great Sean Payton.
  7. Ok lets go way back to 2001 where I didn't have any SB aspirations b/c they were a feel good story and it wouldn't of been the end of the world if they didn't win the SB and thus just enjoyed it. Then in 2003 with a 14-2 record and #1 seed I didn't give the Titans, Colts & Panthers much chance at beating them b/c I trusted the defense. The only thing I didn't trust about 2003 was the running game. In 2004 I was confident but scared b/c the secondary was injured and worried the Colts exploit that in the divisional round and after they took down Peyton Manning I was scared of playing the AFC title game in Pittsburgh. After they trashed the Steelers I expected them to beat the Eagles in they did just that. In 2005 it was pretty much a write off at 10-6 as I expected a wild card win and nothing else and that's what happened. In 2006 I expected the same but they upset the Chargers but I was scared of playing the Colts on the road and rightfully so as they blew a 21-3 lead. In 2007 I was scared the entire playoffs as I figured a loss was gonna happen in any round as had problems with the Jags & Chargers but ultimately met their match against the Giants as the secondary exposed once again. In 2009 I expected no more than a wild win but didn't even get that. In 2010 I was scared of drawing the Jets a month after beating them down 45-3 and it showed as Patriots offense picked the worst possible time to malfunction. In 2011 I had very little confidence against the Broncos and Ravens but managed to get by and then I figured the Giants would beat them again and did so. In 2012 I didn't have much confidence without Gronk and it showed up against the Ravens. In 2013 I didn't give them a chance against the Broncos and was correct. In 2014 after a decade of choking I pretty much was convinced the choking would continue as wasn't confident against the Ravens, and then gave them a chance against the Colts but once I saw the Seahawks in the SB I assumed it would be I Giants type SB result but I was wrong when Malcolm Butler saved the day. In 2015 I said the AFC title game was lost to Denver when they lost to them in the regular season and I was correct. In 2016 I was scared of the Steelers in the AFC title game but was wrong and prior to the SB I was convinced the Falcons would win but was stunned and estatic at the 28-3 comeback win. In 2017 I feared the Jags in the AFC title game as their defense scared me but they survived and when they drew the Eagles I was concerned about the defense failing once again in the postseason and I was right. So basically I've been confident with this team prior to the 2005 playoffs when the Patriots started fielding defenses that could no longer befuddle a Peyton Manning in the playoffs.
  8. I posted positive things after the 2014 & 2016 SB victories but that's been the only positive for this franchise since the 2004 SB win as it's been heartache in the postseason in all the other seasons. I guess it's better they go down in the AFC title game b/c I don't give them much of chance against the Saints or Rams in the SB and losing in the AFC playoffs are a bit easier to stomach than SB losses as I'm still not over the Giants & Eagles defeats and never will be.
  9. It will be 2 years in a row they lose to an Andy Reid style offense. Only difference is that the Chiefs have a QB who is even more difficult to defend than what the Eagles trotted out against them last year. Also look for Chiefs defense to overachieve against the Patriots offense since they can rush the passer and play better at Arrowhead. 9-0 at home and 3-6 on the road will be what defines their season. Also will be thinking about the Miami miracle all offseason as the reason why this game wasn't in Foxborough.
  10. Well off the top of my head the Patriots have been victims of teams using a motivational speaker the night before a postseason game to beat them e.g. 2010 the late Dennis Byrd against the Jets, and last year Brett Favre against the Eagles. So who should the Patriots bring in to give them a speech the night before the Chiefs game? Do any players from their past fit the bill? This team needs any help they can get in order to beat the Chiefs and if it means stealing a page from how the other teams stoop to beat them then I say so be it.
  11. List Of QB's Who Can't Do Without Mobility?

    A run first QB is a QB who can't throw from the pocket and thus has to use his legs to either run for yards, or roll out of the pocket in order to make throws b/c he can't throw from the pocket do to inaccuracy issues.
  12. List Of QB's Who Can't Do Without Mobility?

    Mahomes doesn't run b/c he makes bad throws that get caught. Just watch and see as he continues to throw across his body and the int's will come. He will not get away with this for long. If Mahomes wasn't mobile he wouldn't be able to roll out and make bad throws as he would only be able to make his bad throws from the pocket and defenders would feast on him. And no I'm not trolling.
  13. List Of QB's Who Can't Do Without Mobility?

    Their mobility just covers up their inaccuracy. I'd take a Brady, Manning, Brees, Montana over a run first QB anyday. The only run first QB to win a SB that I know of is Russell Wilson. I know Steve Young won a SB but he was also winning passing titles every year at that time and thus his legs were just a compliment at that juncture in his career.
  14. List Of QB's Who Can't Do Without Mobility?

    I wish injury to all players who play on teams who are rivals of the Patriots. Once his int totals rise he'll just be another RB lining up under center e.g Kap lol!
  15. Ok guys let me know how the list of the following starting QB's would fare if they had no mobility e.g. equivalent to what someone like Tom Brady has which is 0 threat to run and beat you with his legs. Patrick Mahomes Russell Wilson Cam Newton Lamar Jackson Josh Allen Mitch Trubisky Dak Prescott Marcus Mariotta Deshawn Watson Baker Mayfield Would any of the above mentioned QB's be able to have success via limited by his mobility inside or outside pocket? I know they do complete passes inside the pocket but that's merely b/c opposing defenses have to overplay them escaping the pocket and thus it opens up throwing lanes. Notice how I left off mobile QB's such as Andrew Luck & Aaron Rodgers b/c I know they are still dangerous if they didn't have mobility as they can throw from the pocket. My point is that these non traditional mobile QB's are basically just flawed passers and thus have their legs to cover up for that. In Patrick Mahomes case he just gets away with making bad throws and that will catch up to him in due time or hopefully he suffers a major knee injury to make him a pocket passer and we'll see if he can pull a 1998 Randall Cunningham which I highly doubt. For what it's worth the only dual threat QB that I cared for was Steve Young from 1992-1999 as he could throw and run but his passing wasn't all based on the threat of his legs as he won many games while playing injured & immobile.
